Bar Botanique in Amsterdam

I am from the tropics. I was born & raised in Cali, Colombia, a place where palm trees and banana leaves are part of the landscape. Bar Botanique, in Amsterdam's Javastraat, perfectly nails the fusion between Tropical Jungle & Nordic Living style. Here, plants meet velvet and wood meets marble.

For brunch or cocktails, the Bar is opened from day to nigh. The Bar has all the ingredients required for a hot spot: cool location, great people, the food is ideal and the location is so, SO beautiful. Designed by Studio Modijefsky, Bar Botanique is a special place: think warm pink walls meets bright yellow meets green, green & more green. Once inside, it's hard to decide where to look first: palm trees, monsteras, pink marble tops, the bright yellow coffee mchine, the tiles, the warm light lamps... In a nutshell, the Bar makes you feel like you are having coffee in a very chic jungle.
